Very nice, I was asking about this in a Sony forum, a simple method in creating symbolic links

To avoid confusion later, this uses bind. Symbolic links wouldn't work in this situation

Perhaps you got them the wrong way round like everyone else does?

Is your file explorer set to not show hidden files/folders?

External microSD card
Hi Guys!

I tried this app and I have a problem. Source folder /sdcard/external_sd/Sygic (in my case) is not on my external SD card (microSD) but on same place as target /sdcard/Sygic (also in internal phone SD memory). I cannot set source folder on my external SD card (I see error msg - enter valid directory). How to solve this problem?

Thanks.

I think it should be /external_sd/Sygic.

And this folder has to be created, before you can use it.

I do it this way.
